This is displayed with permission of Trial® (July 2017). No juror will recall every fact or piece fo evidence, so you need to connect jurors to your client's case on a deeper level. This means crafting an story that live and breathes. Approach this as if there are two stories to communicate: the "surface" story; and the "beneath-the-surface" story.
In 3-day intensive “Lessons From the Stage In Recovery” workshops, attendees are confronted with the role of the human ego in addiction. Using aspects of narrative therapy, psychodrama, cognitive therapy, hypnotherapy, and 12-Step concepts, clients in treatment centers gain the ability to release their ‘old story’ and create a ‘new story’ for their lives.
Tell the Winning Story uses mask techniques with trial lawyers and clients alike to aid in showing the human spirit in the courtroom and fighting against the natural urges to cast themselves as the ‘characters’ they think the jury wants to see them as.
